IHS Zambia started operating in December 2013, and has since acquired towers from MTN Zambia and Airtel Zambia. Today, IHS Zambia operates the majority of towers in the country.
Headquartered in Lusaka, IHS Zambia has regional offices in Ndola, Solwezi, Chipata, Kasama and Livingstone.
IHS Zambia operates numerous hybrid solar sites throughout the country and continues to roll out new green energy solution systems which select the most efficient source of power, according to diesel supply, weather and electricity availability. IHS is committed to developing its services in Zambia and to meet growing demand.
Key Sustainability Programs
IHS Zambia is committed to increasing the representation of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. In 2019, we worked with the national regulator, government ministries and the UN Development Program to organize an event engaging over 200 young women in ICT. To further support the development of the next generation of technology leaders, female engineers from IHS Zambia toured local secondary schools and delivered talks on the importance of STEM subjects and the related career opportunities for women. We have also upgraded ICT facilities at the School of Engineering, University of Zambia, to help undergraduate students pursue their STEM education with the latest equipment and facilities.
We continue to support the national ICT regulator, Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA) by contributing to their Innovation program which selects young ICT entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 to 35 years and helps facilitate the development of their innovations.
Improving infrastructure in our tower communities is an important component of our sustainability program. In 2019, we launched a borehole drilling project to deliver a safe, clean water supply to over 10,000 people, while helping protect our shared environment.
Traditional ceremonies are a very important part of Zambian culture. They are key to celebrating and preserving century-old historical practices while contributing to positive activities within traditional communities. We continue to sponsor several ceremonies including the Ncwala Ceremony of the Ngoni people, Chiwela Kumushi of the Soli people.
We continue to refurbish and donate generators under the Generator Recycling Program to various institutions including district hospitals, schools and youth centers.
